Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lea-Francis 2.5 Litre Sports 1949 Like many of the early motor manufacturers, Lea-Francis started making bicycles before progressing to cars in 1903. They were always a specialised maker with relatively low production numbers and the 2.5 Litre sports and saloons launched in 1949 would be the final new production models with fewer than eighty examples built over four years. The open ‘Sports’ model had a decent power output but was more of a tourer and struggled against the cheaper and faster Jaguar XK120. The lines of the car are well captured and there are some nice fine detail touches on the model such as an etched windscreen with small wind deflectors to either side but the otherwise excellent interior is let down by sloppy paintwork on the seat backs.
Very well finished resincast models. Made in China.
